I can not even tell you how often my kids ask me to make granola. They love the stuff, and I have to say, it makes me both happy and proud as a mom to see them picking on a bowl of granola as an afternoon snack. This Honey Almond Flax Granola is my latest granola creation and the kids and I went through it quickly over the weekend.

It’s been just a month since I made a big change to my workout routine and joined a new gym that offered a great personal training program. Friends, I have never squatted so much in my entire life as I have in this last month. Squats, lunges, mountain climbers, burpees, ropes, kettle bells, sled pushing…these

Book Love: Tell The Wolves I'm Home, Reconstructing Amelia, The Invention of Wings

I’ve been reading some really great books lately, so much book love! Around the first of the year, one of my friends who is an avid reader started a Facebook group for a few of us who like to “Read Every Day”. As nerdy as this sounds, I am loving the interaction with others who

One thing I’m quickly learning these days is that the more prep I do as far as meals go, the smoother dinnertime is during the week. For instance, when you find yourself with some time to spare over the weekend (or while you are in the kitchen already cooking up something else), go ahead and cook

Spinach Feta Orzo {in Valerie’s Kitchen}


It’s no secret that I all about simple recipes lately. (You know, simple like Slow Cooker Chicken Pesto Melts and Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry simple).  Life is super busy for most of us and I think the biggest struggle we have is consistently keeping meals interesting and healthy but not overly complicated. That is

Buffalo Chicken Slaw Salad

Since Super Bowl Sunday I’ve been having major cravings for buffalo sauce and blue cheese dressing. I am not a huge wing person (I don’t really care for chicken on the bone), but I love anything doused in hot wing sauce and dunked in blue cheese dressing. My love of buffalo sauce and blue cheese

Chili Maple Roasted Carrots

Chili Maple Roasted Carrots - healthy and easy side dish your family will love || Aggie's Kitchen

Roasted vegetables are definitely my go-to when it comes to side dishes at dinnertime. I just love how easy it is to toss some veggies with some seasoning, crank up the oven and let the magic happen without much involvement from my part. You know I am ALL about easy. I make these roasted carrots

Skinnytaste Slow Cooker Picadillo

Slow Cooker Picadillo from The Skinnytaste Cookbook

Well, my slow cooker officially bit the dust this week. My mother in law gave it to me about 12 years ago when I first got married, and since I didn’t grow up with a crock pot I had absolutely no idea what to do with it (I still have the Fix It and Forget

Strawberry, Grapefruit and Ginger Smoothie

Strawberry, Grapefruit and Ginger Smoothie {from Clean Slate}

The strawberries have arrived, the strawberries have arrived! You have no idea how happy it makes me to see Florida strawberries back in our grocery store. Our season starts in December (hard to believe I know) and I think it’s safe to say that strawberries are probably the most consumed fruit in my family. We

I’m back with another pork tenderloin recipe. The Roasted Chili Maple Pork Tenderloin I shared back in November was my introduction to cooking with pork tenderloin and it turns out many of you love this cut of meat too. I’m amazed how much my entire family loves it and I can’t believe I have avoided cooking
